If you have an uneasy feeling about car covers, this is probably due to the fact that the image that it is associated with, is a car covered by what looks like a badly constructed tent. Plenty surplus material flapping around endlessly; quite a sight to behold. However, that is an image of the past. Car covers have been updated as such that you can buy custom car covers.
These look much more stylish and are much more protective. A custom cover is made to measure for your chevrolet nova car, bearing in mind your exact requirements, and desires. It will fit like a glove without excess material hanging around. For your mirrors and aerial, pockets will be made. It will most certainly be the most stylish and the most classy car on the block. To make it unique with that personal touch, most companies leave it to you to decide the color of the cover. In addition, you can even place the logo of your choice on the bonnet.
This is something unique to custom covers alone. You will have already selected the material, and hence the type of protection provided. There are various types, suited to different climate conditions and environments. This way there is a cover for everyone and every car. Once you have selected the cover suited best to your needs, you will find that the custom size will accentuate the protection provided.
With a standard, or even semi-custom cover, there is always the danger that the cover is not the perfect fit, and therefore the opportunity for leaks is there. Things could leak, or sneak in, and the car is no longer fully protected. However, with a custom cover, every inch in covered exactly, there is nothing left in the open. There is also no excess material and space for ‘flapping about’. The cover is tight, as is the type of protection provided. The car will be the most secure it can be. A custom cover will also shield the car from snooping thieves at night. Shady individuals come around and check out potential targets. With the other sized covers, there is a leniency for them to steal a peek at the car and see if it is a ‘worthwhile job’. Since the custom cover virtually seals a car, these unwanted individuals will abandon your car, and you will remain further protected. Custom covers are not that expensive. If you’re anyway going to get a cover, you might as well go all the way, and get the best; for you and your car only deserve the best. When the expense is weighed up against all the advantages, it is obvious that a custom car cover is definitely a worthwhile investment.
Buying a semi-custom car cover is probably the most cost-effective way of preserving your car. It is an indisputable fact that cars need to be covered otherwise they will be left to nature’s peril. The ultra-violet rays from the sun will fade the exterior and ruin the finish. The cabin will get too stuffy and intolerable to drive, and the internal specs will get ruined.
Rain, sleet and snow, all leave unsightly, ugly watermarks all over the exterior. The high level of acid disintegrate the paintwork and make it look horribly patchy. The car will look old and battered well before it’s time. When the wind blows, it manages to drag along with it junk from the streets. This includes twigs and stones, and as they fly past, they end up knocking the car leaving it scratched and dented all over. All of this is aside from the bird’s muck and the like that manages to park themselves on the car’s exterior. These also disintegrate the paintwork and leave long-lasting stains that are near impossible to remove. The dust will also pile up and the car will look old and weather-beaten. So it is agreed that a cover is needed. The type of cover will very much depend on the environment and the climate that the car is kept in. Some covers will be better for sunnier climates, others will have better waterproof protection. If the car is kept indoors, it will need only basic protection against knocks and bashes, and the dust, and not these fancy weather-proof ones.
However the type of sizing also makes a difference in the quality of protection provided. Universal car covers will fit on to any car, big or small (trucks come as a different size). They are cheap, as they can be mass produced. However, they will never fit properly. Either the cover will be too big, and look like a badly constructed, baggy tent, or will just about cover, often leaving bits peaking out. Therefore the protection offered by universal covers is not the best. The custom cover is very expensive, as they are tailor made. The cover is made specifically for that particular car and it’s specification, making things like the mirror and aerial pockets where necessary. This obviously means that there is no space for anything to sneak in, under the cover. Whilst this gives a classy look, it is also a pretty penny. That’s why semi-custom is a perfect choice. They are made to fit a selection of cars of similar shape and size. This means that the cover will fit the car properly, even if not like a glove. The protection is still topping, and the car will look good even whilst covered. However, it is not nearly as expensive as the custom, as it is not produced only for that car.
